From west to east

How can you not love being able to do this – have Swiss food one day then Japanese the next. It’s been a culinary weekend *happy sigh* with more on the way, if I’m lucky heh heh

We did our bit to celebrate Swiss National Day by partaking of a lunch buffet. Alas, no sign of a fondue vaudoise nor the irresistible raclette because those were only available for dinner. But after wolfing chunks of poached salmon and inhaling teeny bites of delicate smoked trout, nibbling on eight different salads and charchuterie, even the hot food was a struggle. I thought the spread wasn’t that fantastic, but it had highlights, such as every fish dish, an all-points onion & cheese tart, and a pudding that was like triple fresh cream with a hint of custard. Zomg! on that last one. Pity about the sad cheese plate.

That was yesterday’s lunch. Today, we were told to present ourselves at an out of the way japanese restaurant in a most beautiful suburb. The restaurant was v dark and almost comparably beautiful inside. Unfortunately, lunch was a bit on the small side and the recommended wine didn’t match the food. But our meal was made by one of the top sashimi chefs in the country, so hey, not all bad. This here then is a pic of my meal before it was  consumed.

Koi lunch

Yes, that’s pretty much my entire meal, minus the miso soup which was heavily salted. Pretty chocs followed the bill.

Then we trotted to the pub next door for dessert and nibblies.
